70 Cool Math Games
My little Miss Four seems to be right into math at the moment. She’s always counting things and using her fingers to help keep track of things she’s counting. I wanted to harness this eagerness so I’ve been searching the Internet for some cool math games that I can use with her. Well there are definitely some great math games out there, so I’ve put this list together to help you find some of those games as well. As there are so many games below, to make it easy to find ones that will suit your class, I’ve sorted them into junior primary, middle primary and upper primary games. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. 40. 41. 42. 43. 44. 3 games for middle primary by iSurf Maths Instructions for Go Fish, Times of War and Basic Gin Rummy. 45. 46. 47. 48. 49. 50. 51. 52. 53. 54. 55. 56. 57. 58. 59. 60. 61. 63. 64. 65. 66. 67. 68. 69. 70.

Instead of asking for a card to match your card, you have to ask for a card that would add with one of your cards to make a sum of 10. I introduced the game with out class 4th Grade buddies, but it was still really difficult. So I made up this little cheat sheet to show that combos that make 10. 7 Resources for Integrating Math and Humane Education The content that follows was originally published on the Institute for Humane Education website at Thank you for sharing “I thought math was just a subject they implanted on us just because they felt like it, but now I realize that you could use math to defend your rights and realize the injustices around you.… [N]ow I think math is truly necessary and, I have to admit it, kinda cool.

FUN Critical Thinking Activities For Students in Any Subject The experts on STAAR, such as the Texas Education Agency, the Lead4Ward team and Regional Service Centers tell us that there are some very specific things that we need to do, and other things we should let go of in order to prepare our students for the state assessment. In addition, these strategies can also deepen and broaden their knowledge. Allow for more collaboration on rich content between students (student-centered)Provide higher level thinking questionsGive ample wait timeIncrease critical thinking through authentic instructionFollow the DETAILS of your TEKSKnow the vertical alignment of your TEKS and collaborate with other grade levels The following are ideas for activities that you can use in conjunction with our curriculum in order to help meet some of these criteria, as it is necessary to adjust our mindset from TAKS driven packets to STAAR rich conversations and activities.

final fashion » paper dolls If you have any interest in paper dolls, you have encountered the work of Tom Tierney. Mr. Tierney is the quintessential 20th century paper doll artist, perhaps the only paper doll artist in the world who has created a name known outside the world of niche collectors. His prolific body of work covers vast swathes of popular culture – film stars, politicians, literary and historical figures, mythological creatures, the camp, and the bizarre. If a human-shaped subject could possibly be adapted to the paper doll form, Mr.

Math in Art In our teaching programs, we all learned about the different sides of the brain and different learning types. But with the recession, many schools lost the programs that helped reach all learning types – especially art. Art is more than just creating beautiful pieces, many of the great master painters used math concepts to make their pieces even more appealing. Art helps other subjects come alive! Open-Ended Assessment in Math Welcome Here's a way to move beyond traditional assessment methods in math by using open-ended questions that require students to communicate their mathematical thinking. Developed by Thomas Cooney, Wendy Sanchez, Keith Leatham, and Denise Mewborn, Open-Ended Assessment in Math provides more than 450 questions. All involve significant mathematics, are solvable in a variety of ways, elicit a range of responses, and enable students to reveal their reasoning processes. This online resource also offers samples of student answers, a scoring rubric, and additional narrative material that addresses the nature, construction, and reasons for using open-ended items.

QR Code Quest Scavenger Hunt- Part Deux! I updated & improved my QR Code Quest Scavenger Hunt lesson I previously blogged about this year & used it again with my AWEsome ESOL kids & 6th graders. I wanted to share those changes with you because it seems as if you like QR codes! Of my top 5 most viewed blog posts 3 have to do with QR codes (and yes, you know I'm barmy for 'em!) In fact, the first posting about this lesson has had, as of today, 17+K hits! WOWIE! Web 2.0 Tools for Math Educators By Laura Turner This is a continuing series on Web2.0 and other web-based tools for educators. This information is specific to math educators, but there is some crossover into science. Math educators will find a large number of useable interactive companion web sites for the teaching of math concepts and skills. 3Dvinci 3D design is a great motivational and instructional tool.
